Armand de Brignac Blanc de Noirs Assemblage Two is a new limited edition of 2,333 bottles from the famed champagne brand that belongs to American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur Jay-Z. The champagne is made from premier pinot noir grapes grown in Chigny-les-Roses, Rilly la Montagne, Verzy, and Verzenay.
Armand de Brignac Blanc de Noirs Assemblage Two “A2” was created by Jean-Jacques and Alexandre Cattier, 10th and 11th generation champagne growers. They relied on the first press of the pinot noir and a blend of three different vintages: 2008, 2009, and 2010. The art of blending Champagne varietals and vintages is the most important part of the craft, and allows our winemakers to preserve the house’s character from year to year. The sparkling wine was bottled in 2011 and was stored in a special gated section of the cellars designated for its ideal conditions for ageing the blends, until disgorged on June 20 of this year. This champagne can be properly cellared until 2031.
On the nose, honeysuckle, peppermint are the first to appear, with a slight aroma of peach and apricot follows in the background. Every 750-ml bottle of Armand de Brignac Blanc de Noirs Assemblage costs $1000 and comes with its own inscribed number from production and the disgorgement date. The exclusive champagne will be available in October.
